Indie Alt-Pop singer/songwriter, Roy Shakked, from Israel/LA offers this bright, funky new album called “Throwback.” The album has 10 songs, including:
The album has a mix of moods throughout as you can see, though most of the music lies closer to “chill” than high energy. The album does bounce a bit all over the place – you definitely won’t get bored with it as a whole!
Shakked says of the album, “This release was created in my personal analog studio, sinking into some fuzzy 80’s and 70’s influenced grooves and harmonies, collaborating with a bunch of amazing musicians around the world in the process.”
My particular favorites on the album are “Beautiful Things” and “Your Eyes” but I’m a sucker for sweet melodies and acoustic instruments. I will definitely be adding them to my playlists for certain types of writing sessions.
I’m not a huge fan of a few of the genres on here, but surprisingly enjoyed the album, nonetheless. I can’t say I’d listen to this on repeat all day (save for maybe the two favorites mentioned), but I would probably let this play in the background on days I’m working and just want some good vibes playing.
